Today I bring you the blinc tubing mascara that I received in my May Total Beauty Box. This mascara is a polymer that coats your lashes all the way around  with a tube and is supposed to stay on all day even if you go swimming, cry, or workout. 

This sounds like a revolutionary product….does it hold up?

Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips Gel Cream Liner Review October 7, 2011

My favorite drug store brand remains Physicians Formula. I have been using today’s product for months now, but not talked about it too much. It is the Shimmer Strips custom eye enhancing gel cream liner for Green Eyes.

What is it, you ask? It is a set of 3 cream/gel eye liners that compliment your eye color – so you buy the set for the color your eyes are (green, blue, brown, hazel). My eyes (as you’ve probably noticed from the mascara comparisons) are green – so I bought the green set.

This particular set has three colors, matte green, matte purple, and black with green sparkles – very subtle sparkles. They come in three little pots that have caps that allow them to attach to each other – I consider them lego’s for adults.  Some people have siad they have trouble getting these apart, but truly, you just pull really hard and they come off – you won’t break anything (you can also try prying with a screwdriver or butter knife).

Unlike many stack-able potted products these each have their own caps instead of using the bottom of the next product as a cap, which allows you to throw just one in your purse or keep them all together – whichever you want.

Today I bring you the first “high-end” mascara I ever bought. I’m nearing its expiration date and I wanted to share how awesome it is before I have to throw it out! When I took the makeup lessons I referred to in previous posts I also went on a personal shopping trip with the instructor. She told me that if I was to buy just one thing that day it should be this mascara.

Did I end up agreeing?

Lancôme Hypnôse Drama Mascara Review September 10, 2011

  Part of my free gift with purchase was this Hypnôse Drama Mascara. I was super excited to try this, I’ve heard great things about the Lancôme  mascara lines and you know I love my Lancôme products. I had to hold myself back from testing this until my mascara I kept at work ran out.

This sample of the Hypnôse Drama mascara in Extreme Black is 0.135 Fl oz. The full size is 0.22 Fl oz and is available for $25.00 just about anywhere Lancôme is sold. This sample (as with the “Blues” palette) is a very generously sized sample.

Ok – great size sample- but how does it work you ask?
